Snowdrops by Starlight

The First Ever Illuminated Snowdrop Wood
‘ An inspiring and artistic spectacle’

To the thousands of visitors to Cambo Snowdrops each February the series of walks through the 70 acres of snowdrop woods on Cambo Estate are already an inspiring sight in daylight.

Inspired by the amazing sight of drifts of snowdrops caught in the headlights of her car and thanks to funding from Celebrating Fife 2010, Fife Council and Heritage Lottery, for ten evenings in February 2010 Cambo Institute transformed these snowdrop woodlands by light and sound into an enchanting wonderland delighting young and old. Children hunted for fairies, adults enjoyed the mesmerising light effects, all ages had a wonderful experience viewed, as one visitor remarked, ‘through a magical lens’. The lights picked out features in the designed landscape, both natural and manmade, mature trees seemed even more magnificent and the sculptures created by artists and school groups from willow and natural materials caught everyone’s imagination. Even the odd shower of rain or snow didn’t dampen the effect, indeed visitors remarked that they added to the enchantment!

The snowdrop woodlands will once more be transformed into a magical wonderland!

As in previous years, the Snowdrop Tea Room will be transformed in the evenings with twinkling lights and will serve refreshments. The Gift Shop will be open and of course snowdrop bulbs and other plants will be for sale.

    Bryce, who is also going from Glenrothes, offered to give me a lift as he would be passing by me (I'm in Kennoway) and think he was taking Ross too. I don't have an issue driving either but if we are all going to be passing each other anyway it would make sense to just all go in one car as there is only the four of us anyway and then we don't have to try and find each other when we get there.

    I wasn't sure if there were paper tickets being issued for this or it was simply okay to turn up with the email confirmation but I received my ticket in the post today so obviously you will need the actual ticket so don't leave it too late to book.
